Orange launches new security service for mobile devices
Orange has launched a new security service for remote managing business and employee-owned mobile devices.
Secure Mobility is available across iOS and Android. Businesses can remotely set up and manage business applications on mobile devices, enforce security and lock and wipe devices if one goes missing. Businesses can also control remote access to content, which Orange said it will ensure only authorised parties can access corporate data. Orange is offering mobile device management separately, if a business chooses to stay with its own security processes.
Everything Everywhere business director Max Taylor said: 'Smartphones and tablets might be empowering businesses and their employees, but they are also generating new management and security challenges for IT teams who are under mounting pressure to ensure the security of a growing mobile fleet and the data it is being used to access.
'The fact that Secure Mobility is highly scalable and has a flexible pricing structure means that data protection and device management practices can adapt with the mobile fleet, rather than lagging behind it – even if a business has a ‘bring your own device’ policy. This reduces administrative overheads and allows IT teams to spend less time managing employees’ devices and protecting their networks and more time focusing on helping the business grow.'
Orange has partnered with MobileIron to provide the mobile device management technology.
